Working the Emotional Roots of Homosexuality - Part 7

Many people with homosexual desire have settled for things as they seem to be. By this I mean that they have resigned themselves to "being" a certain way or to situations that just won't change. They identify with their sin as though it were who they are. They speak of their failures, sin pattern, ungodly reactions, disposition and moods as though these were unchangeable. To settle means to accept or defend something rather than turning from and renouncing it. Years of painful experiences and unhealthy reactions make it difficult to see beyond the present condition; they feel they can't or won't develop another perspective. Sometimes they become defensive if this is pointed out. They may even reject the counsel you are giving them. This is beyond a passive resignation-this is identification with and justification of a bad viewpoint.
